Providing Mental Health Support for our Girls

By Trizah Gakwa | Strategic Growth Director

Our girls have navigated the pandemic with resilience and courage, dealing with many changes including a very tight school calendar. They have persistently pursued their academic dreams overcoming many challenges. As they have closed school for the holidays our focus has been to provide them with mental health support to help them process their experiences from the previous school term and equip them with skills that they can use to cope and grow in a healthy way.

Our Mental Health Specialist introduced Tension, Stress and Trauma Release Exercises (T.R.E) as one of the interventions and it has been very helpful in helping our girls release the trauma that they have been carrying. They seem happier, lighter and more excited about their goals and dreams. We acknowledge that a lot has changed so we are continually modifying our support to best meet their needs. We're grateful for our community of support, including our donors, that make it possible for us to expand our capacity to provide much needed support to our scholars. Thank you.
